Logging in as root in Mandrake 10.1
I am new to Linux so please cut me a little slack. I learn quickly though. I have been trying to get Mandrake 10.1 to allow me to edit, create and delete files and directories. No luck. I figured the easiest way would be to log in as root and edit my account so I could.
I did a little searching and found another post on here that suggested I edit the KDMRC to allow root login at the login prompt. Only problem is that I can't save the edited file unless I am logged in as Root. ARGGGG!
I have not used a command line interface since dos so I would prefer to get all this done in the GUI until I am more famiular with Linux and can begin learning the command line.
Anyone have any suggestions? Please...help!
